    I am in a bit of a bind. I have the old style Mark 4 1 inch rings (a little smaller than the new ones) and am in need of one or two (what ever i can find) keepers for it.

    Leupold sent me new ones, free of charge, I did not even have to pay shipping. However they do not work. The new style is bigger and thicker and will not mount to my Nightforce base. One ring will lock down with either keeper but for some reason the other ring will not work with either of the new keepers, very strange.

    If you have the older Mark 4 keepers and can part with them please let me know how much you want for them.

    I am in a BIG BIND. I will even swap you my new keepers if you want, they are beefy'er than the old style.

    Please Help if you can

    Keepers are the "C" or "U" shaped bracket the nut puts pressure on to tighten down and hold the ring on the base.

    Hop this helps clarify. If not let me know I will try to articulate it better.
